Getting man boobs

I recently started working out. My trainer asked me to take protein powder to build muscle because I look skinny and he thought I am lean, but I do believe I had chest and stomach fat. Recently I've started noticing my moobs showing. What am I doing wrong?

Gynecomastia often goes away without treatment in less than two years. However, treatment may be necessary if gynecomastia doesn't improve on its own or if it causes significant pain, tenderness or embarrassment. Medications used to treat breast cancer and other conditions, such as tamoxifen and raloxifene may be helpful for some men with gynecomastia...if you still have significant bothersome breast enlargement despite initial treatment or observation, your doctor may advise surgery...consult nearest surgeon they will do the needful.
